Goodbye San Francisco
By robs on Dec 01, 2008
Took Matthew to the airport. Walked down Powell, caught BART out to SFO, and took the airport shuttle. Again, very convenient. This past week of staying in the city, driving places with Aram, taking public transportation, or just walking has been great. Has allowed me to experience the city in a good way.
That said, here are some observations:
- There is a large homeless population in downtown San Francisco
- The bus system seems to be more for "lower class"
- BART seems, well, old
- Many buildings are unoccupied
Another thing is that pedestrians definitely have the right-of-way. And, they predominately tend to follow the Walk and Don't Walk signs.
